Four Tuidang volunteers went on a day trip to remote villages in China to help people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The road they took led them to a large village where they met an 88-year-old woman who was a CCP member and had been a party official before she retired. They discussed the CCP corruption and its wrongful persecution of Falun Dafa. She knew very little about what Falun Dafa was truly about.
They told her about Falun Dafa’s principles “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance”. She thought the principles were good and that the people who lived by these principles should not be persecuted.
She willingly quit the party.
They next spoke to an elderly man on a bridge between villages. He also learned the truth about Falun Dafa and they asked him to pass on what he learned to his family and friends.
A young man stopped to talk to them as he rode by on a bike over the bridge. He learned about Falun Dafa and the persecution, was appalled, and used his real name to quit the Youth League, an affiliate to the Communist Party. He was not afraid. Some people did not use their real names when withdrawing their membership from the CCP because they were afraid CCP authorities will persecute them and their family for quitting.
They walked further and met a couple harvesting corn in the field. They spoke to them about the CCP’s corruption and inhumane treatment of Falun Dafa but the man became very upset.
Soon after, two policemen in a patrol car stopped them. One officer was in his 30s, the other was older.
They knew someone had informed the police, possibly that man harvesting corn. They were not afraid.
They tried persuading the two policemen to let them go, but to no avail.
One Tuidang volunteer said, “We are not afraid even if you take us to the police department. The police will release us. But you will be doing the right thing if you release us now. We are just talking to people and letting them know the truth about Falun Dafa. They cannot learn the truth without us telling them about it because all they can hear about are lies, deceitful propaganda defaming Falun Dafa.  We are also giving them an opportunity to make an educated decision according to their conscience and quit the CCP.”

The older policeman stopped shouting and softened his tone. However, the younger one was determined to take them to the county police department.

When the patrol car arrived at the police department, the two officers from the car took the Tuidang volunter to the Domestic Security Division. In the office, they were immediately released in front of the two officers.
